for tax increases every other day, every day for that matter, and those are mott going to deal with -- not going to deal with the spiraling out-of-control spending that rawses the need for more debt -- raises the need for more debt. again, the differences on this subject, mr. speaker, are well-known, and i'm hopeful that we can work towards setting aside the differences, focusing in on how far we can rk towards accomplishing cc dealing with the problem of the mounting unfunded liabilities of the federal government. i yield back. . ha the gentleman for his observation. let me, if i can, some irony in the gentleman's response. we've been talking about two items. one, the going to conference, i eal with prospective spending, prospective increase in debt or deficit because we buy more or spend more or cut revenues more. the debt limit, as the gentleman so well knows, deals with what we've already done. doesn't have anything to do with increasing what we're going to spend. the budget does that. now, we're not dealing with the budget, but there is discussion dealing with this priorit
, because if i owe $2,000 to you guys on my income taxes, do you guys say you can pay off a little at a time and then pay the rest of over a long time without being penalized? that is garbage. host: congress man? guest: there's a provision, if i'm not mistaken, if there are back taxes due, the people beyond $2,000 that is the feet that is being required in order to help pay for the processing of individuals, that will also be demanded as well. two-sided sort. -- sword. many of these undocumented workers in various industries in this country pay into a great deal of federal taxes, whether it is deducted for their payroll for social security, fica, etc., with no opportunity of ever retrieving or utilizing that tax, because they are prohibited from taking any federal program. also, one of the areas in which there will be some consternation is the fact that even though they have a work visa and are working toward a permanent status, all public benefits will be denied to 11 million people that qualify for this program. host: on twitter -- guest: yes, and parts of the criteria is going to be exact
by 50% in five years, but our tax revenue remained the same. hadmember one time we arrested somebody for selling cocaine on a playground. the person arrested was in the country illegally. it took our detectives five hours to determine who he was a trick he had five social security cards. illegal immigration does not only affect people on the southern border. 40% of the people in the country illegally did not cross the border. they came on a visa, the visa expires, and they do not go home. it is nearly impossible for law enforcement to determine who they are talking to it, to determine someone's past. for a minimal amount of money, you can get an entire new identity. we have an immigration law tw reasons. one, to protect our national security, and, too, to protect american jobs. the proposal of the senate gang of eight violates both of those principles. it will make our borders less secure, and jobs harder to find at a time when 22 million americans cannot find work. by offering a pathway to citizenship, by offering amnesty, or what i like to college, temporary amnesty in definitely,
, if the american people are watching this and they know their tax osha going to the justice department who can't send someone up, when i look at the ig investigation, the activity that took place with peres and some of his activities, and you can't send someone up, we will send someone down tck them .u we wi try toappear. >> wl yield speak th will not yield on this unable to you because i found that this lady lives in my congressional district and they deserve this but if you can't go by the end of may, it is a real disgrace for this country. i will now yield. >> i think -- i thank the gentleman fight you. the attorney general has said he will look into this, ma and he will get back expeditiously. it will take time for him to get information to get an answer that you could come in next week and say, i haven't had time to get information you need. we have to coordinate with dod. they would be little point and occupy the attorney general in the midst come in the wake of what's going on in boston and everything else right now, and having him come back on and in the air and. i would rather they ca
in terms of cutting spending. cutting spending in the tax code. then i think it also keeps promises to people, it to those that were part of their whole life and want nothing more than a secure retirement. and our veterans to whom we have made promises as the have donned the uniform and fought for the country. host: what about the issue of chain cpi? guest: i start with the very basic notion that social security has not contributed one penny to the current deficit or debt. table in not be on the this part of discussion. similarly, to be concerned about the long-term solvency of so-so security. urity.ial sec retirement security is a real question mark for many americans. let's look at the real contributors to our deficit and debt as we try to tackle those challenges. and host: two final questions before we go to calls. this is another article from the hill. why were you left off the list of the 12 senators that went to dinner? iest: i have no idea, but have been very pleased with the president's increase -- increase out reach to the senate and a house. that dialogue is essential to m
spending in essence bankrupts the country because you can't raise income taxes at least high enough to cash that level of spending but it can't be done. indisputable that that is our number one problem in terms of the budget. we hear talk about the budget today. i just wanted to get your thoughts on that. the white house has proposal in the budget that as i read would reduce that growth from about 110% over the next 10 years to about 100%, but it's 104% because it also assumes a permanent medicare doc fix and also does include a 90 billion a canceled sequestration cuts to medicare which would further decrease health savings. so it's somewhere more than 104% increase in spending rather than 110%. no structural reforms. the question is what the trustees having told us medicare trust fund is insolvent in 2024, again with everyone who's looked at this thing our number one driver in all this is medicare. and once again th mire funding trigger ha'teen ignored so no proposal from the administration even though it's required by law. my question is, what do you suggest in terms of dealing with this
